Not a Good Week for the Virtual Worlds Space
DECEMBER 22, 2009
First, Metaplace announced it will be closing its virtual doors on January 1, 2010 at 11:59 pm Pacific Time. This was one of the alternatives I listed for something other than Second Life in my Alternatives to Second Life (continued, again) I described Metaplace as: Is a Flash-based virtual world platform that allows players to buy and sell items, own property and play online games. It is inevitable that the 3D Virtual World space will have acquisitions, mergers and failures.
